How do you clear your mind?

by jcpeden 59 replies
Sometimes I feel completely overwhelmed, I know there are people with a lot more on their plate than me but I find it really hard to kill off inefficiencies and focus on a single task - the only surefire way to enjoy any success.

I know that to be successful I need to clear my mind and focus on a small number of things, but right now I feel like I'm being pulled in all sorts of directions.

How do you stay focused?

    Easy. Get a tasty beverage, sit down, and start going through your tasks one by one. We're all human, we can only do one thing at a time so don't stress out.

    Start on the most important thing to you, then move down (two things are NOT equally important). Your always making progress, some people move faster than others.

    I want you to think of life as an hourglass. You know that there are thousands of grains of sands on the top of the hourglass and they all pass slowly and evenly through the narrow neck in the middle. Nothing you or or I could do would make more than one grain of sand pass through the neck of the narrow neck without impairing the hourglass. You, I and everyone else are like those hourglass. When we start the day, we are flooded with hundreds of task that we feel that we must accomplish that day, but if we do not take them one at a time and let them pass though the day slowly and evenly, as the grains of sand passing through the hourglass, we are bound to break our physical and mental structure.

    I like playing outside with my daughter. Especially on nice days like today.

    I just sat down with a clean thought process ready to tackle the next task.

    Thing is, like you said there's a lot of different tasks.

    So what I do is jot down some notes on a pad of paper and put a line through as I go.

    Especially when I get really overwhelmed I find this helps, because then I can see what I need to do, pick which one to do first and then just focus on that one part until it's done...or ready to be put back on the list

    Music helps me a lot.

    It doesn't work when I'm listening to music that has lyrics though. I tend to focus more on the lyrics than what I was originally trying to focus on, lol.

    Check this out:
    Digitally Imported - addictive electronic music

    Hover over the 'Listen Now' menu item.

    When I need to clear my mind and/or focus, I open the 'Chillout Dreams' or 'Chillout' MP3 streams. It is 100% free to listen to these MP3 streams.

    I recommend using VLC (VideoLAN - Official page for VLC media player, the Open Source video framework!) to play the stream. It is opensource/free and works on just about every operating system.

    When I get over emotional, Shut the door and cry for sometimes. I fill so relax and light after crying. Then my mind get cool and review the situation then I make my own strategy to stay focusing and fulfill that desire.

    Physical activity - go rake a section of your back yard.

    Lie on the bed, close your eyes and force yourself to relive the memory of a positive experience.

    Music.

    Sit outside, get fresh air, look at the trees, listen to the birds.

    Choose one of the above, and when you come back to your computer, you'll be raring to go.



    P.S. I use an old-fashioned timer that 'dings' ........keeps me on the clock when I can get carried away with following rabbit trails on the Internet.

    P.P.S. Turn off automatic delivery of your email and only check it at designated times in the day, morning, noon and evening.

    I bathe. Warm water. In the middle of the night.

    Then I drink a can of iced beer, then go to sleep.

    The next day I feel refreshed. No worries .
